Microsofts big hardware event is October 6 in New York

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft today sent out invitations for its previously rumored hardware event. It will take place in New York on October 6.

What hardware will we see? The company tells us that it's for first-party Windows 10 devices, but beyond that, isn't providing specifics. It's believed that Microsoft will launch both the Surface Pro 4 and a pair of flagship Windows Phone devices, codenamed Cityman and Talkman. There's also talk of a Band 2 fitness device, though technically, this is very unlikely to be running Windows 10 in any of its many incarnations.

While credible specs for the phones have leaked, both the Surface Pro 4 and the Band 2 are big unknowns. A Skylake processor is, at this point, an inevitability, and the basic form factor isn't going to changeMicrosoft has said that Surface Pro 3 accessories will remain compatible with future devicesbut beyond that, it's an unknown.

Likewise, the updated Band is, like its predecessor, a complete mystery. The first Band caught the world off guardthere were rumors of a Microsoft wearable, but it wasn't even known if it would be a watch, a fitness band, or something else entirelyand it looks like the secrecy that surrounded that device has been retained for its second iteration.

Whatever Microsoft announces, we'll be on the scene to tell you all about it. It'll kick off at 10 AM Eastern.

I bought Plus for XP, rnlteecy, then I installed it. I was expecting a Microsoft Plus that added great features like Plus 98. But, it was nothing like that. First, there was 4 measily little themes. And the fish screen saver, which if you want more fish, you'd have to pay for it. Well what was the $ for anyway? And the games! For heavens sake. Why put a stinkin lite edition into a $ collection of programs. And there are other programs that I might not fool with anyway. For those who are looking to buy this, please note that you at least need a 500 megahertz computer, 64MB of RAM, and a 3D video card with 16, I repeat 16MB of video memory. If Microsoft had added such things as an Antivirus to the program, more desktop themes, FULL EDITION Games, and less steep requirements, then I'd recommend this to everyone. So if your at the store, leave this on the shelf!!!PS This program is a prime example of Bloatware.
